I recently moved to Fishers and had several friends rave about the wonderful world of Handel's Ice Cream. I was pleased with my hand dipped banana cream pie in a delightful swirl placed in a delicious waffle cone. Prices are reasonable. There are trove of selections and and amazing creations from the traditional but out of this world Banana Split... More

Dear Chocolate Malt Customer, We are obviously disappointed that your first visit to Handel's was not 100% positive. The milkshake you received should have actually been made with chocolate ice cream, not vanilla. That would have made your chocolate malt more flavorful. Also, it's our policy to deliver the shake to the customer with a lid and straw, but we... More

Had a chance to sample their ice cream on a recent visit. The ice cream was good, the service was fine, but didn't really care for the lack of seating. Not sure what residents do when they visit. Otherwise, it was worth a stop to sample their ice cream.

My wife is the Iie cream lover in the family, and Handle's is her favorite. They make their own ice cream, and have many different flavors. On those hot summer days, the lines may be long like in the picture they display, so we go during the non-peak hours. This is THE place to go for ice cream when you're... More

There's usually a line or two in order to get ice cream. My favorite is the hot fudge brownie sundae. Great ice cream and treats. We visit frequently - a diet killer.

There is a reason that they get national attention! Their flavors are unique and there are many of them. It can be crowded on a warm day, but worth the wait!

Can't go by without wife wanting to stop. I am diabetic and they have sugar free ice cream. It's as good as the other stuff.

We love Handels ice-cream. So many to choose from. You can get Banana cream pie at this one. We also love Chocolate Rasberry Truffle. It's open year around and is usually busy even in the winter. It's so worth the trip.

A mandatory stop for our family whenever we are in the area! We have tried many different ice cream shoppes, none can hold a candle to handels. The staff is always so pleasant and their flavors are all so delicious! Good value too!
